I do board my horses at a small boarding facility nothing fancy, that's crazy about the horses names I've had my Beebe for 15yrs!

I was not able to ride today either due to freezing rain, I had to put my horses in stalls tonight (which neither of them like) but they were shivering even with blankets on, so they got warm mash and a warm stall tonight.

I know A LOT of horse people with Tundras. Whats up that? I feel left out I have a Chevy...

Barry wants to trade it in because he is convinced the transmission is magically going to blow up at 100K miles. He said if we keep it there will be a problem and he doesn't want to pay insurance on 3 vehicles. Who would have thunk it?

His new truck will be here around the 31st. It will have to have the seats changed. It is white with the mat Black running boards and wheels. It looks nice but his red Tundra is pretty nice looking. We have never had a white vehicle so this will be a first.

Sorry to barge in, but I was curious....
What do you guys use to measure your mileage?

Just for fun I wanted to see how many miles I do a day at work, downloaded the Runtastic app onto my phone but it kills my battery.

Thanks :)

tiffrmcoy - I'm glad that you think so ;)

COWCHICK77 - I use garmin GPSmap62 /I've bought it for work but uses also privatly/ it is quite expensive if you want use it just for fun so my friends use endomondo on their mobiles
I usually two (or more) times per year take part in multiday trips(usually 5-10days) so it may be problematic to charge battery in mobile that is why I was looking for something other than mobile apps

I had used Back Country GPS on my old Android phone, but have been playing with Polaris Navigation on this Android phone. My phone is not a new to date as it is the Samsung Rugby 2 with the military grade case built into it and water proof to 1 meter. I'm rough on phones and this is the only style I haven't been able to destroy in 3 weeks or less.

The Polaris program is looking to be a lot easier to use and better options than BC had. So far I haven't experienced a short battery life from it while running in the car to try it out.

Come income tax I am going to get a small hand held gps to use on the trails.

Cowchick, I used a Garmin 62S for the first time on Sunday and I was impressed with it. It recorded our distance traveled, time spent moving, time spent resting, traveling speed, and recorded our track on the topo map screen. It also gives you a screen that shows the difference in elevations traveled. Pretty neat!

Come on in CowChick77. I use a handheld Garmin eTrex Ventura HC. I love it!!! I have a screen set up to show current speed, max speed, average speed, time, direction, and moving time. I download it to Everytrail. It is not an expensive model but it does what I would like.

I also use one of these. I bought one because it is what the cool kids use.

I think what most of us are using has been replaced by the newer models in the Garmin line up.

However, you can find a very nice used handheld like the e trex Hcx or the 60Csx for a reasonable price. Think Ebay....

Just make sure it's a mapping hand held, and that it has adequate memory.... the x in Hcx designates that it takes micro sd cards for expanding the memory....I run mine with a 2GB micro sd card installed, have the entire SE US 1:24,000 topo maps installed and still have about 512mb free to save track logs and ect. To.....

My first hand held was the basic blue first generation etrex Legend and even without the maps loaded it would still record a track log and capture speed, distance, time etc....it didn't have a color display but hey..see what a few years does for technology?

Most of the new machines really don't have a lot more features but they do have a lot more on board memory and improved battery life.....
